    It is very long, and it is very interesting. It is also very hard to copy paste, it's very erratic and skips some parts when copying. This is how some of it copied: sort of took 2 different paragraphs and joined them together---it really has to be read and not copy pasted.

    I was able to get this way down from the start of it. It is explanations of where their graphic symbols come from.

    "To Mormons, the sun, moon, and stars together represent the three degrees of giory in the resurrection.40 The individual symbols also have didactic meanings of their own, the sun, for example, dgdjhg the Celestial Kingdom. The sun has universally represented God, and to Christians, both God the Father and Christ the Son. In Mormon rhetoric, the moon stands for the Terrestrial Kingdom. The moon was one of two primary dieties worshiped by the ancient Egyptians and also played an important rde in Hebrew festivals and holidays. By withdrawing its light, the moon presages important events. In some cultures, the moon has figuratively represented mothers or the passage of time. Stars have signified children, an& to Mormons, the Telestial Kingdom. The stars forming the Ursa Major on the west central tower of the Salt Lake Temple represent the priesthood. Why the five pointed stars point downward on the cast and west facades and upward on north and south walls has never been explained."

    Thanks, mmksparbud. I didn't know I had to give a synopsis of links. I thought that rule only applied to videos.
